S2D - SLIDE DIGITIZING and ENGINEERING


CHILLING PROFIT
IN THREE WAYS
Our newest product and a chance for you to make money is with the S2D Slide to Digital operating system.   We offer this idea and process several ways.  
•   Retail, just need slides in bulk converted, you set the pricing
•   Wholesale in bulk sorted and processed, you make profit with no work, we do it for you
•   Go into business and do it yourself by the purchase of our system and make greater profit

You have customers, friends, relatives, and possibly a closet, garage, basement filled with Ektachrome, Kodachrome, Fuji Chrome and Agfa Chrome slides slowly degaussing and gathering dust.   Somewhere out there are estimated six billion plus slides.  Most likely parked with a broken unfixable Kodak Carousel going or already useless as there are no parts and few work on them. The solution, turn the sides into digital and you can make money offering this service.   

When you just have a few weddings on the books, here is a related product that can profitably fill in the gaps.  In fact one user in New England is doing more slides than Weddings now.  The Wedding market is changed and so have other events with the advent of smart phones and the Mamma’s and the Papas’ with their Canon Rebel (1thru 8)  or Nikon 3000 Series. Buy the kit, a cheap flash and business cards.

Our new Slide 2 Digitizing unit which is as fast as predicted and sometimes faster, as I only make conservative claims, offers the following:

•  800 full frame sharp quality slides per hour  
•  High Resolution imaging with enlargeable 24MP files.  
•  We print 24x30
’s all the time from the huge files when the credit card machine says approved.   
•  Converting old slides into modern digital imaging formats and turning incredible profits with a two hour setup and learning curve.   
•  And a 2399.00 dollar investment, includes everything including a premium 24MP SONY Camera, special lens combo, works anywhere there is a table, no supplies, chemicals, no paper needed, totally self contained, and 
independent. 
•  The only other expenditures are DVDs, or thumb drives, business cards and a desk. 


IN THE BEGINNING
THE STORY OF TELLING STORIES

If we go back to the beginning of story telling mankind, the first writings were preceded by pictures scraped and drawn on cave walls with bone and charcoal.  These were the first storytellers, of the hunt, of the strange beasts, of victories and life.  Some of these drawings were incredibly accurate.

We may have evolved a millennium in time but we still have stories to tell and those stories have been portrayed for the past century on walls just like the cavemen did only we used slides, a screen and a Kodak projector.  And in some cases an unwilling audience asking the battle cry of the bored,  “Are we done yet”.

Now with the digital era, the older social events like the Kodak Carousel slide show that showcased memories are not as common anymore.  Simply put, they were a lot of work, dragging out the projector, if it still worked, out of the closet, basement, or worse the attic where those stored slides were triggers for a spontaneous combustion. Your attic in Florida hits 140-150 degrees and another twenty or thirty can lite up.

Sorting was a pain you got to see the good the bad and the ugly, heat up the whole room blowing dust laden air all over the place, and when the bulb cracks going crazy trying to find an overpriced bulb.  And the ultimate insult when the solenoid goes, you have a useless piece of machinery.

Many family, career, events, weddings, births, successes and failures, are important to be passed down to the next generation and when these slides are updated and are on DVD’s, they can be passed down to all siblings, friends and future generations to operate with the newer TV’s Smartphones, Tablets and Computers, and any future digital age equipment.  


BUSINESS OPPORTUNITY
CLIENT BASED BUSINESS
The S2D digitizer brings 60 years of slide film into the present, economically and for the entrepreneur profitable.  First converting slides into digital imagery usable on anything from smart phones to TV’s.  

Second, when you release those files to the consumer on a DVD so you can duplicate, additional DVD’s or let the customer do it, but nine times out of ten they will pay you to do it.  All the siblings get a copy, you clean out their closet and get rid of both the  storage and trays etc.  Most of the time we find they don’t want the trays or the slides. Show them the before’s and after’s with simple corrections and head for the garbage, salvaging the trays or offer them $2.00 each as a discount.

With thumb drives available for a few dollars, about four dollars for an eight GB, you can slide copy, crop automatically and finish process at a rate of 80 every five minutes or conservatively 8-10 trays per hour or 800 slides earning about forty-two to fifty cents per slide and you do the math, you really can make money.

COLLECTIONS GREW
SIMPLE FACTS

Like many of us we ended up with an overabundance of these memories on slides as slides were the optimal color film and presentation method before digital. Over time, the pile got larger and larger, the older methodology of trays and sorting for the Kodak Carousel became more and more of a job.  And dragging the Kodak out became a hassle.

Frankly, it’s a pain in the butt, boring, and no one really wants to help, and many just dumped those memories on the next of kin who really didn’t know many of the people in the pictures and can care less. 

Other remedies consisted  of the Plan A, the local refuse pile, resigned to a closet somewhere or worse the dreaded basement, with it’s moldy old environment and moisture which causes the slides to separate, degauss or other denigrate by little creatures ending with the memories returning to Plan A.

Meanwhile, the legion of disaster, Father Time, Mother Nature and Sir Murphy-Laws control the scenario.  The slides are deteriorating but there is a greater problem.  So is the projector, which might not be functional anymore.

 👺   Unrepairable by Kodak since they went out of business and closed support in 2004

👺    Critical parts that went bad, like the buried solenoids, gears and breadboards common to repair are not available  

👺    Repairs are a fools errand.  We work on only our units for our conversion. We do not do outside repairs.

👺    Early models suffered from the poor plastic composite gears which over time morphed into gummy bears

👺    CAUTION:  Some eBay entrepreneurs promise their kits and replacement parts work but you’ll wind up where you started after loosing your money.  You have been warned.

👺    Some models known to us, we will not upgrade or convert, the number is right at 50%.  

👺    Words like commercial model, school usage are not desirable.  Those mass media Carousel devices for school presentations were used day and night.  Only our experience in machine selection and the fact we worked on them commercially for all this time aids us in knowing what will work and what will not.

👺    The  longer the 300-400 watt halogens heated up the room, they were also cooking the slides, increasing the fading and deterioration. Time to save the slides. 

👺    In that case we offer and have an in-house service to digitize slides or you can purchase the same equipment we manufacture for us,  invest in the equipment, join our growing network, make good money with the S2D Slide Digitizer.
